COVID-19 in Puerto Vallarta

There has been a total of 1909 reported cases in the past seven days, compared to 1,533 cases in the seven days prior, for an increase of 25% compared to the previous seven-day period.
Puerto Vallarta currently reports 1,719 active cases of COVID-19, these being people who have been infected over the past 14-days. The number of active cases in Puerto Vallarta exceeds that of Guadalajara, the second-largest city in Mexico, which has 1,356 active cases.
Hospital Occupancy in Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta Naval Hospital is reporting 72% occupancy of beds for treating COVID-19 patients after nearly two weeks at 100. The local IMSS Hospital is reporting 78% occupancy in COVID-19 beds, and the General Hospital in Puerto Vallarta is reporting 88% occupancy. These occupancy rates are only in beds designated for the care of COVID-19. As occupancy increases, hospitals add more beds to their COVID units. A lower number of occupancy is likely due to new beds being designated for COVID-19, not fewer patients being treated.
